                         Voyager 1 heliosheath data for the first time. This is done using 
                         the magnetic field data alone. The heliosheath MM structures are 
                         found to have the following characteristics: (1) quasiperiodic 
                         spacings with a typical scale size of not, vert, similar57 p, (2) 
                         little or no angular changes across the structures (not, vert, 
                         similar3 longitude and not, vert, similar3 latitude), and (3) a 
                         lack of sharp boundaries at the magnetic dip edges. It is 
                         demonstrated that the pickup of interstellar neutrals in the 
                         upstream region of the termination shock (TS) and 
                         quasiperpendicular TS plasma compression are the causes of MM 
                         instability during intervals when the IMF is nearly orthogonal to 
                         the solar wind flow direction. Concomitant additional injection of 
                         pickup ions (PUIs) throughout the heliosheath will lead to further 
                         MM amplification. MM structures in planetary magnetosheaths and 
                         interplanetary sheaths are discussed for comparative purposes.
